Sign Up to The Glasgow Build Off!
Sign up here to fundraise for charity by recreating a landmark from Glasgow in Minecraft.
What is this?
The Glasgow Build Off is a 4-day Minecraft build to benefit Volunteer Glasgow, run by R-CADE and Volunteer Glasgow. R-CADE is an online and in-person hub for retro and tabletop games in Glasgow's Saltmarket. Volunteer Glasgow is a charity working to transform lives through supporting people and organisations to volunteer.
All the donations taken during streams of The Glasgow Build Off go towards Volunteer Glasgow's activities helping people to volunteer. This year more than ever, volunteers and voluntary organisations have made a huge difference to Glasgow and to Scotland, by providing much needed care and support to communities during the pandemic.
The Glasgow Build Off is a chance to keep that volunteering going by building and streaming for our charity! The Glasgow Build Off is for builders and fans of all ages and experience levels.
How does it work?
The Minecraft server opens at 4PM on Saturday the 28th of November. The server will be open for the following times so you can build, chat and explore what everyone else is up to! R-CADE will also be live-streaming during these build times, so whenever the server is open, you're live online.
We're running a Java edition game, so our Minecraft server is only accessible to PC users, not console players.
Saturday 28 November: 4-8PM
Sunday 29 November: 4-8PM
Monday 30 November: 6-8PM
Tuesday 1st December: 6-8PM
Tuesday the1st of December is Giving Tuesday, an international day of charitable giving, and the day we round everything off! R-Cade will be running a stream showing off everyone's creations between 7 and 8PM.
We're aiming to build 20 different Glasgow landscape icons. You can select what you'd like to build from a list we've put together, or you can pick something special to you! The only rules around what you build are that it's in Glasgow and that there aren't any repeats. If you see a landmark in the checkbox list, it means it's available! If you can't see an option but think it should be there, it might have already been claimed! Head over to
to see the full list.
The server is moderated by R-CADE and we ask that you treat everyone in it with kindness and respect! Because The Glasgow Build Off is open to all ages, we ask that there's no adult language used while you're on the server.
